Ungrip is the newest smartphone accessory that provides a simple and effective solution to a modern day problem. Gone are those days when the fear of dropping your phone or being phone-faced (the act of dropping your phone on your face when you’re using it while lying in bed) is a real deal. It aims to give you security and proper phone grip without neglecting style and comfort. We got a chance to Ungrip our phones, and here’s why we’re all raves about it.

Ungrip has two parts, the bumper (the one that directly attaches to the back of your phone) and the polyester strap (attached to the bumper that can easily be detached and changed when necessary). It is small and thin with a height of 2.36 inches, a length of 1.18 inches, and a bumper width of 0.24 inches. Weight is also not a problem as its lightness is amazingly only at 3 grams, so it conveniently attaches to a phone with or without a case.

Functionality

One of the most remarkable elements about it is the security it gives you when holding your phone. There won’t be any more anxiety of damaging your phone’s screen after a fall, grief over dropping your phone while walking, embarrassment of phone slipping from your hands, or hurting your face from a phone falling on it when you’re lying down. It can exceptionally be adjusted according to the size of your hand. Simply put, the placement of Ungrip is custom-fit to a specific type of device in reference to your hand size. And it gives you a multitude of ways to hold your phone, a definite plus on flexibility.

So if you’re having a difficult time deciding between having your phone on landscape or portrait, Ungrip is one of your best bets in giving you freedom to move your phone completely by letting you rotate it with just one, swift maneuver.

Now, we all know that most of us are suckers for selfies. And the best way to conveniently do it is with a selfie stick. But what do you do when you forgot one? Ungrip addresses the recurring problem of taking blurry pictures or dropping your phone when taking a selfie without a selfie stick. With Ungrip, you can simply extend your arms and maximize your reach, and have a secured position that will not compromise the quality of your photos.

One of our initial concerns was on the adhesive behind the bumper. But the worry of it not holding properly or easily giving in disappeared a few minutes after we tried it on the phone. The adhesive is of industrial strength, which means it can carry an excess of 4 pounds in weight. It can also be removed and adjusted without leaving any residues on your phone.

Ungrip extends its functionality to not just holding your phone, but to also carrying it. It comes with a lanyard hole for use with wrist straps and lanyards for easy carrying of your phone.

Comfort

Ungrip is not bulky and it stays flat. Compared to other accessories, the polyester strap is more comfortable and lets you hold the device with much more ease; no bruises, scratches or unwanted marks. It is with assurance that prolonged use will not cause any discomfort. The bumper’s texture is very fine and smooth; no chances of hurting your finger. The connector for the bumper and polyester strap are also of high quality that conveniently helps attach and detach both parts.

Aesthetics

Some phone accessories are aesthetically-pleasing but serve no function. Some have astounding function but scores low on aesthetics. Fortunately, Ungrip can boast on both, aesthetics and function. The polyester strap comes in different colors and there are a lot of designs to choose from. Since the strap is detachable, you can change it just the way you want it, whenever you want it. Imagine your phone having a variety of looks within the week! It can match your outfit or just express the mood you are in. You can even mix and match bumpers and straps! For the young ones and the young at heart, it can be hip and trendy. For the more corporate ones, it can be classy and sophisticated. It can be a fashion accessory that highlights who you are, while not forgetting its main purpose of securing your phone.

Ungrip is a simple product that works really well. It is a combination of flair, function and fashion. An innovative product should definitely be introduced in the market and should be easily accessed by everyone.

Get out into the real world.
